Jumana Nagarawala, a Michigan emergency room doctor has been charged with performing female genital mutilation on multiple girls of about the age of seven.  The doctor was also charged, “transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity” — a reference to FGM — and making false statements to a federal officer.

The criminal complaint says federal agents documented that two girls were transported by two women across state lines to a medical clinic in Livonia, Mich. Documents show Nagarwala is not employed at this clinic nor is there any record of her billings there.
